El Paso County Road Impact Fee Update - EFFECTIVE January 1, 2020
The BoCC passed a Resolution on December 17th amending the EPC Road Impact Fee program. The purpose of this resolution was to confirm the effective date of a fee increase adopted in 2016; expanding the fee program’s applicability from new subdivisions to all new building permits effective January 1, 2020. This change may impact Builders who have individually platted lots.
The fee program was established in 2001 in an effort to equitably allocate the impact of new development as it pertains to transportation improvement projects needed to accommodate growth. The HBA and other stakeholders supported the establishment of a countywide fee system in 2010 and have worked with the county to review and offer recommendations as the program has developed. Developers have several options when it comes to the fees including joining different PIDS to offset some of the cost or they have the option of deferring the road fees from time of plat to permitting. The changes to the fee program have been approved by the BoCC based off the work of the Advisory Committee.
